    Assuming everything goes as rapidly as possible, what's the minimum interval between start of production -- the step after "entered the production queue" -- and delivery at a California Service Center?

    This information will help in my time planning once the car enters production.

    About a month. Mine took 20 days. I think the fastest I've seen is 10 days.

    Here's my timeline:

    Order Confirmed -> 2 days -> VIN -> 8 days -> Building -> 5 days -> Production complete -> 1 day -> Pickup at factory

    Sometimes it depends on what options you select. My friend ordered a P85d late last year, it was promised his car will be delivered before the year end, but after he paid the deposit, Tesla called him and told him that the car won't be ready until early 2015 unless he add smart air suspension. He felt he got cheated, he wants the car last year so he can apply the tax return soon. After he added the option, he received his car right before the new year eve.
    The good thing is, he loves the smart air suspension now, he thinks it is one of the must have option.

    My 70D took 2 weeks after the order was confirmed.

    Two weeks from confirmation to delivery at a Service Center? When was that? I suppose I should've said that I'm interested in recent experience which may apply to my situation -- confirmed Aug. 11.

    That's 13 days. So if it was 2 weeks after your order was confirmed, then it went into production the day after your order was confirmed on 7/8?

    Order was confirmed and VIN assigned 7/1 and 7/1, respectively. Ordered 6/23. Time from order to delivery: 30 days. Time from confirmation: 22 days.

    Early- and mid-July California cars were ripping through quickly. This was just before the 70, 90 and Ludicrous mode options introduced. The TMC tracking sheet shows multiple that were delivered in under 30 days after confirmation. I do have to think that the new options were done to get more backlog of orders.

    I ordered my 85D on 7/10; on 7/17 it was confirmed after my upgrade to a 90D; was told by my DS i was going to be behind the wheel by 8/17ish but as of today 8/20 the car has been in final testing and inspection for about 7 days. Not sure what is going on. My DS said he sent an email to get details so we will see what he has for me tomorrow. My financing expires on 8/23 so I am a bit frustrated (although they are giving me an extension). Hopefully it is delivered soon and there is nothing crazy wrong with the car.

    I did an analysis of the vehicles tracked on the "Model S Delivery Update" thread spreadsheet and determined that the majority of cars delivered in California were delivered within 2 weeks of production start.

    Great charts - Thank you! I was looking at the spreadsheet, depending on what day you start production - if it is Monday, it will be faster, since they do not work on weekends. Mine went into production on Tuesday night, hoping its done on Monday!

    My 85D went into production last Monday, and I'm also hoping it's done on Monday!

    Production on mine took 5 days so I'm right on the most frequent # of days. If the data holds true, I'll be taking delivery next week.

    For my 90D:
    From VIN to Final Assembly line, 3 days. VIN to PDI complete, 5 days. VIN to pick up at Fremont, 7 days.

    Might be the fastest ever. No repairs, nothing. Wasn't a zero-defect car though (of course).

    YMMV

    yeah, I'm right there with you. Going on 11 days "in production". I wonder if the model s production has really slowed down with the model x coming up?
